Stanchion Uses

Stanchions are used across a wide range of different organizations including Hotels, resorts, retail, airports, warehouses, galleries, museums, exhibitions, festivals and other outdoor events, busy receptions areas, showrooms, leisure spaces and more. Stanchions can help not only to support crowd control and queuing but can also be used to cordon off restricted access areas, as well as enhancing the overall customer experience by improving customer flow and making efficient use of space.

General Queue Control

There are many scenarios where stanchions are used for queue control, often in retail, ticket-sale booths, reception areas and so forth. When used for queuing applications with heavy customer flow, stanchions are often set out in a zig-zag or snake-like pattern with a typical width of around 3ft - this distance encourages customers to stand in a single file line and prevents queue jumping. The zig-zag layout provided by stanchions also serves to lessen queue related stress, as customers are funneled down a single queue with the person at the front of the queue being directed to the next available outlet – this type of system is often used at airport check-ins and in retail and provides a fair system for all. Individual lane queues are often deemed more stressful if one lane appears to move significantly quicker than the other.


Stanchions are popular in the retail industry for queue control purposes on retail checkouts. Some retailers further utilize this system by putting up slat wall panels which can be fitted between stanchions, enabling them to support a wide variety of merchandise. This allows customers waiting in the line to consider purchasing add on items – a retail technique which benefits from high success rates.

Museums, Galleries & Exhibitions

A common sight in most museums and galleries, stanchions are mainly used for purposes of wayfinding, to prevent visitors from getting to close to particular exhibits, for cordoning off access to restricted areas and for queue control at admission points to paid exhibitions.
